Heena Sidhu celebrates TikTok ban
“I’m so happy that tiktok is gone. I posted hate videos and animal cruelty videos on Tiktok…I’m happy. Without tiktok, the Internet will be a happier place!” Sidhu tweeted on Tuesday.
“It hasn’t disappeared yet, but I hope the government can continue. Developers have a responsibility to make this content not only visible and viral. Unless they change the specifications of uploaded content, this application should not be in our lives. A place.”, said the Indian Olympian.
Due to the death of 20 Indian soldiers and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army in the eastern Ladakh after the conflict in the Garwan Valley, bilateral relations between India and China are still tense, and the Indian government banned 59 Chinese applications on Monday due to national security issues.
Other Chinese applications on the banned list include Club Factory, SHAREit, Likee, Mi Video Call (Xiaomi), Weibo, Baidu, Bigo Live, etc.
TikTok said on Tuesday that it is complying with the Indian government’s order to ban 59 Chinese applications, including TikTok, and does not share any data of Indian users with the Chinese government.
